Learn why Ohana is way more than just childcare

Welcome to Ohana Early Learning

We are family, place to grow - life skills and education are just the beginning….

Quality childcare for the whole family

The name Ohana is derived from the Hawaiian culture meaning family, a place where we come together through love and respect. We aim to provide a safe, warm and loving environment for all our families. Our philosophy is based upon our core values of fun, community and inclusive learning.

From 6 weeks to 6 years

We recognise that busy parents often need care for their children from an early age. To address this growing need, we employ caring educators and qualified teachers who are skilled in providing individual attention to children of all ages. Ohana aims to foster a fun and interactive approach to your child’s development, from babies at six weeks up to the age of six and the start of primary school.

Our team are more than just childcare workers. They are hand-picked professional educators, skilled in caring for and nurturing the needs of little individuals. You will find the local team across all our centres are capable of managing more than one child at a time in group activities, and responding swiftly to tricky behavioural situations or emergencies such as injury or sickness.
